Abstract:

The launch of an Atlas vehicle, AMR Test 5462, was monitored with the Madre system from the Chesapeake Bay Annex. Detection was accomplished via an over-the-horizon mode of propagation. Both real time and post flight analysis assess the 10,000 square meters target return to be a typical ICBM launch signature.
